The new technology, developed under the LIFE GreenPower project, will result in significant savings in primary energy and CO2 emissions from the EII and eliminate the use of fluorinated gases.
Green Power technology will thus contribute to the growth of the waste heat recovery market in Europe by demonstrating how low grade unused waste heat can be efficiently converted into a required form of energy.
The technology will be applicable to all EIIs and transferable to other sectors that generate low-grade waste heat. GreenPower operates without harmful working media and fluids compared to the best available techniques using organic Rankine cycles or heat pumps.
LIFE GreenPower is supported by the European Union's LIFE program. LIFE is the EU's financial instrument for supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate protection measures throughout the EU. Since 1992, LIFE has co-financed around 3954 projects, contributing around 3.1 billion euros to environmental and climate protection.
